Medication For Weight Management

In Canada, there are weight loss treatments available. 

Prescription medication as part of a holistic approach to weight management

Weight management medication typically works by suppressing appetite or by preventing the body from absorbing and/or storing energy in consumed food as body fat. Suppressing appetite can be helpful, especially if appealing foods stimulate one’s appetite even when hunger is absent.

Talking to your doctor

Weight Loss Medication can help as a weight management solution. A simple conversation with a doctor can determine if this type of weight loss support is appropriate, and which medication should be prescribed together with diet and exercise. Doctors are the best resource for questions about weight management prescriptions and medications.
